The legend does it again

Another fantastic podcast by my idol, Andy Bush. Even as a 90s kid, I can relate to so much that he covers in this brilliant, sometimes hilarious podcast. Keep it up Bush!

Warning - uncontrollable laughing highly likely!

Absolutely love this - am (cough) slightly older than the 80s kids, but love not just the memories but the comments.

Suggest you don’t listen when next to someone trying to sleep (a request from my husband!) as this is real laugh out loud stuff.

And “K” was a well-needed tonic after the Euro final.

Superb Podcast

I loved the 80’s, Toys,TV,Music, well done Bush for bringing back these memories, trying to program our Sinclair ZX81 to have a little dot moving across the screen after spending hours and hours typing in the code.
Keep up with the good work, can’t wait to hear the next episodes 👍
